This place offers photos of people holding various big cat cubs. The excessive breeding to provide cubs for this activity is disturbing. Once they are too old for photo ops the animals futures are extremely grimm.

My husband and three other went to visit on Nov. 27th and were surprisingly impressed with our visit. Keep in mind this is Mexico and standards are not what you may find at home but we all thoroughly enjoyed it. We went early in the day and we were pretty much the only ones there. When we arrived and paid... More

My family and I travel to PVR every year and the is a MUST every year!!! We love it! Over the last 5 years I have watched the Zoo grow and make improvements all the time! Yes you do need to be a little more cautious then in the states but you get way more interaction! Make sure to stop... More

Kids loved feeding the animals. Best $5 we spent. They give you a bag of different foods and a list for what to feed the animals. Don't feed the ducks they can nip at your legs for more and steal food from your bags as they follow you around. Half way you will stop at the restaurant just after the... More

For starters, it's a zoo. If you don't like zoos, don't go. But if you don't mind the zoo experience, this one is soooo worth it! This was our second visit and what a great time! You buy a bag if food, labeled so you can feed each species! The hippos come up and hold their mouths open so you... More

The only reason it is a 4 star instead of a 5 star is the last part where the tapir's and pigs are kept, smells really bad and is not an area of the zoo that you really need to go through. We would suggest to go the bridge, which includes all but the very last part and then at... More

We have been to Vallarta many times. This is our First Zoo trip! Well Done!! Up close and personal. Clean a decent walk and a wide variety of animals, birds and reptiles. The best part was a toss up.... Giraffe,, Flamingos,,,Dirty Turtles... the ducks that follow you all the way... we Really had a good time!!

It was a cloudy few days in PVR so decided to take our girls to the zoo as this one seemed to get good ratings. From the second we pulled up (45 minutes later from Nuevo Vallarta) I regretted it. It smelt SO bad and then I felt sick to my stomach about how poorly the animals were treated as... More

My son suggested we go to the zoo one day as he had heard good reviews. It has been a few years since I last went to the zoo so I figured why not. A really pleasant surprise. A great selection of local and exoctic animals. Some of the enclosures are certainly small and could be more ergonomic for the... More

This is like no zoo in the states. You can pet and feed almost every animal, which is not necessarily safe, but pretty cool. Wear lots of bug spray as the zoo is in a rain forest type environment and wear good hiking shoes as there are lots of hills and lots of walking. For a few extra dollars you... More
